Ode to Uzay
Orbit Zenith Man is an homage to one of the most sought-after Star Wars toy bootlegs of all time, the infamous Turkish Uzay Blue Stars.
Why Hasbro hasn't done their own homage, I don't know. Why Hasbro hasn't simply churned out oddly-colored Clones and Stormtroopers, I don't know either. I'd buy tons! But, they did the DIY crowd a huge favor by releasing 12" limited articulation clone troopers. A neat, durable toy for kids, and a fun plaything for painters!
Of course I intended the first run of Orbit Zenith Men to be solid blue, with a white weapon, but being the amazing planner that I am, I ran out solid blue. Hence, Edition One is all metallic colors, since I have plenty of those. I'll do a more traditional solid scheme next if these sell through.
The metallic looks incredible though, I can't help but gawk at them on my shelf.
Everything is still on track for release tomorrow!
